Meeting Place

“Finding yourself at Balzer” for an aperitif, a quick lunch or simply to bring home the typical desserts of Bergamo from our pastry shop is, as always, an occasion not to be missed thanks to the appealing surroundings: between the Sentierone boulevard with its impressive trees and the Donizetti Theatre, it is impossible to remain immune to the charm of this historic Bergamo pastry shop.

“Xella with her pompous movement, Marcello Personeni with the charm of a conqueror, the budding young journalist […] All sat at Balzer to confer lightheartedly.”
“The table of intellectuals is headed by the poet Alberico Sala, then Emilio Zenoni, then Bindo Missiroli who watches the changes to his theater […]. There is Maria greeting Franco: “How is Corelli?” “Good and you, Callas?” Wow, what people at the tables of this glorious pastry shop.”
“Balzer, always full of beautiful, intellectual people. In my sweet memory emerges Pierino Terzi, the best storyteller at the time, the unrepentant bachelor collapsing on a woolen thread.”
“Champagne flows at a table at Balzer with the always haughtier Mina Pesenti. Outside there is Martino Marzoli that chases after Elena Giusti. The splendid showgirl is in Bergamo for a series of shows and at Balzer she makes quite a scene.”
“During the beginning of the Seventies I got married*, to Maria Luisa, the most pursued maiden in Bergamo, who, when she walked the Sentierone and passed in front of Balzer bar, destroyed many hearts. Nicola married the girl most loved and desired.” *In reference to Nicola Trussardi.
